BMW M8 Coupe Design
Racing and design are intricately linked in the first-ever BMW M8 Coupe. Even the perspective from the front immediately conveys an unmistakably powerful message – here comes an M model. Few but very precise surface lines convey the extent of power lurking beneath the hood. The hexagonal kidney grille with M typical double slats draws attention to itself between the iconic four-eye face of the BMW Laserlight. The size of the air intakes widens towards the bottom and shows how immense the cooling requirements of the high-performance engine and brakes are. The torsion-resistant, extremely light carbon-fibre material in the M carbon-fibre roof reduces weight and lends modern technological value to the aerodynamic shape. The side view amplifies unmatched aerodynamics with the sharp inclination of the sharknose, extra-large air curtains and few bold lines. Flared aluminium wings with M gills and M8 designation emphasise track width and wheel size. The rear spoiler lip, M-specific M8 rear diffuser and M-specific double-flow exhaust system with twin tailpipes highlight racing aspirations.
BMW M8 Coupe Available Colours
Brands Hatch Grey, Sonic Speed Blue, Marina Bay Blue, Donington Grey, Barcelona Blue and Motegi Red. Optionally, customers can choose from a wide range of BMW Individual Paintwork options.
BMW M8 Coupe Interiors
The driver-focused interior of the first-ever BMW M8 Coupe is a commitment to sportiness and absolute luxury. M8 lettering on the door sill prepares for an adrenaline-charged atmosphere right from the point of entry. The driver and front passenger have a sporty, low seating position and the controls are grouped into clusters according to their function. The unique comfort and superior grip of the newly developed M Sport Seats is perfected by side bolsters and a flared shoulder area. This claim is visually underlined by the exclusive two-tone full leather ‘Merino’ upholstery with hexagonal embroidery in the seat’s center section and an exclusive illuminated ‘M8’ logo in the headrest. Generous space allows passengers to enjoy absolute freedom of movement. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 420 litres. The 40:20:40 split backrest and automatic boot lid operation provide greater space and flexibility for loading / unloading while Comfort Access gives way to hands-free opening and closing. Ambient Lighting with six dimmable designs creates an atmosphere for every mood. The Harman Kardon surround-sound audio experience turns every emotion of music into an acoustic revelation with its pure, rich and precise sound. The sound experience can be further upgraded to the optional Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system.
